At least 7 individual Dingy Skippers flying at Hod Hill today, 19/04/2021 plus a Grizzled Skipper that refused to sit long enough for a shot. Supporting cast of Orange Tips, Brimstone and a Speckled Wood.

Also seen at Hod Hill was this near fully grown Marsh Frit larva nibbling on the Devils Bit Scabious leaf.  A good find as they seem to be very few and far between over the last few years at Hod Hill.
